Apr 19, 2001, 01:00 ET from XML Global Technologies, Inc.

    NEW YORK, NY, April 19 /PRNewswire/ - XML Global Technologies, Inc. (OTC
 BB: XMLG), a product focused, XML powered, e-business platform company,
 announced today that MedChannel, a technology company focused on optimizing
 the medical supply chain, has signed a multi license contract with XML Global
 for GoXML(TM) Transform which it will integrate into its Collaborative
 Healthcare Network. The Collaborative Healthcare Network provides global
 business connectivity, supply chain applications and specialty services to
 increase efficiency, drive value and reduce costs for all participants in the
 healthcare industry.
     GoXML(TM) Transform is an XML based transformation engine for dynamic
 exchange of XML, EDI and other data formats. XML-based mapping templates allow
 transformation of data between XML and a variety of formats, including EDI,
 relational databases, and flat-file. The patented, rule-driven, Transformation
 Engine easily handles complex translations with high-flying speed. The
 GoXML(TM) Transform product is a core component of GoXML(TM) Foundation, a
 leading XML-based data integration platform launched by XML Global
 Technologies earlier this month.
     "Timely, accurate and accessible information is essential to the
 healthcare industry," stated Peter Shandro, CEO of XML Global, "yet problems
 can arise when vital information is distributed in disparate data formats
 across multiple legacy sources. We are very pleased that MedChannel has chosen
 GoXML(TM) Transform to support their initiative of quickly and easily bringing
 on new trading partners to MedChannel's Collaborative Healthcare Network."
     "MedChannel is planning significant growth over the next 24 months," said
 Denis Reilly, COO of MedChannel, "which will dramatically impact the amount of
 data stored within our healthcare network. After examining the market,
 MedChannel concluded GoXML(TM) Transform offers the efficiencies and
 scalability needed to maintain our growth without compromising the needs of
 our trading partners."
     MedChannel will integrate XML Global's GoXML(TM) Transform within the
 next 60 days in order to facilitate accurate data transformation for all
 participating trading partners. GoXML(TM) Transform will serve as the baseline-
 messaging data transformation layer that will allow applications in different
 environments to communicate, enabling MedChannel to create the many-to-many
 communication environment crucial to its business model.
